Perceptible air of excitement fills Ishaga Orile, an agrarian town in Ogun Central Senatorial District of Ogun State, as residents bubbled in high spirit.
The excitement is not about the approach of the yuletide season only. It is also about the reality that all roads now lead to Ishaga Orile for all sons and daughters worldwide on December 18.
It is the Day All Progressives Congress, APC Senatorial candidate for Ogun West Senatorial District, Senator Solomon Adeola, and his people will commission the new ultra modern palace of Onishaga of Ishaga, Ogun State.
The palace which was started by the people over a decade ago and had until recently remained in its rudimentary stage, was largely completed by the senator, who is also the chairman of Senate Committee on Finance.
According to Dr. Prince Tunde Tella, Senator Adeola took over the construction when the community were already pressed down by the cost of building the big palace which is unique in the area in terms of size and outlays.
Tella added that the Senator did the plastering, tilings, painting, aluminum, plumbing, electrification, roofing, borehole and land scaping of the entire palace.
Prince Tella, the first son of the reigning monarch of Ishaga Orile, Oba Joseph Tella, stated that the Senator who is the Araba of Ancient Ishaga Kingdom, in addition to the palace development, brought transformer to the town and has also done free medical programme for the people of his homestead in Ishaga.
The commissioning ceremony which coincides with the celebration of Ishaga Day and the birthday of Oba Tella will witness the gathering of all sons and daughters that were dispersed over a century ago to several communities in South West and beyond during the historic Dahomey war of March 15, 1862.
That singular war virtually destroyed the famous Yoruba town according to some historical accounts.
